* In ''TabletopGame/BloodBowl'', the eponymous game has replaced warfare. And this is in an AlternateHistory version of ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}''. The dwarven hatred of orcs has been reduced to hooliganism. The dark elves and the high elves settle their differences kicking a rugby ball around instead of killing each other. Khorne no longer wants blood and skulls, he wants blood and touchdowns.

** One reason the mightiest of the gods aren't [[TheGodsMustBeLazy directly trying to fix]] the mess the world's in is due to their obsession with "The Games of Divinity," which are apparently the Platonic Ideal of Fun. A lot of the fans don't like this explanation.

She manifests as a game board, and does absolutely nothing but play games with any and all challengers... [[AbsurdlyHighStakesGame with ridiculously high stakes for winning or losing.]] Think memories, skills, your body and soul... to give an example of how serious it is, most spirits are allowed to take an advantage that makes them immune to mind-control that would cause them to violate one key rule of their existence. Sigereth? ''Cannot be compelled to lose board games.''
